Police are seeking one or more vandals who went through a neighborhood off Wilroy Road damaging mailboxes recently.

Homes on Williams Road, Garden Lane and Normandy Drive found their mailboxes pulled out of the ground, pulled off their poles or otherwise vandalized earlier this week, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said.

There are no witnesses or suspects at this time, Klink said.
